The focal point of the journal is modern Asian societies viewed from the standpoints of social sciences and humanities. The geographical focus is Central Asia to Oceania excluding Australia and New Zealand. 

Asia in Focus was initiated to provide Masters and PhD students with a widely accessible and transnational forum to publish their findings. The journal accepts submissions (academic articles, academic essays, book reviews) from students from all European institutions of higher education.

We publish high-quality academic manuscripts that are written in a concise, focused, and readable form. Asia in Focus currently ranks Level 1 in the Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series, and Publishers.
